Sailing Yacht ATHENA
Luxury Sailing yacht ATHENA is a remarkable superyacht and at 295 feet overall (90 meters), ATHENA is the largest private sailing yacht of the modern era and the largest all-aluminum yacht built to date. She is built entirely of high tensile Alustar and she is a giant which displaces a staggering 1,177 tons. Not only is she the largest but she has been created to the highest standards of traditional craftsmanship whilst incorporating inspiring technical achievement.
ATHENA’s three masts soar 197 feet above the deck supporting 28,632 square feet of sail. Her beauty is obvious, but Athena is also the sort of marvel we have come to expect from Royal Huisman and the myriad Dutch industries pressed into service to ensure her timely delivery while meeting the owner's demand for the highest quality.
ATHENA’s interior design is by Rebecca Bradley, her bridge Deck featuring open air lounge, media lounge, lobby and powder room. Her main deck with formal dining salon, library, main salon with wet bar and an alfresco dining area. She also features roomy foyers, hallways and satellite seating areas.

She also holds a prestigious award by KNVTS Royal Huisman Shipyard and ATHENA was recognized by the Royal Dutch Corporation for Shipping Technicians.
